 Dealing with drains is part of VIP Plumbers daily plumbing duty in Pretoria.

 From a blocked drain, toilet, kitchen sink, shower or a damaged sewer pipe that needs to be replaced.

Aging sewer lines made from clay or cast iron can easily be penetrated by root intrusion and contain cracks causing the pipes to rust out. Over 50% of blocked drain repairs can be attributed to root intrusion. Factors that contribute to this problem are older pipes with joints, shallow and small pipes, and fast growing tree species.

Drain problems can occur for many reasons due to aging lines, tree root intrusion or ground movement, calcification and blockages from overuse or blockages from foreign objects.  These issues if not dealt with in a timely fashion can cost home owners thousands of Rand in damage to their homes and landscaping.

Over time calcium deposits form a crusted coating on household pipes called "calcification" causing clogging of pipes and drain lines, especially when hard water is in use.
In addition to the expense and inconvenience, backed up sewage drains in the home can cause serious health risks such as contamination from mold and harmful bacteria. Backed up drains can also cause sewer drains to overflow sending deadly waste water into our streets and waterways.
